Energy storage system roadmap for India: 2019-2032
India is committed to reducing GHG emission intensity up to 33-35% by 2030 from the 2005 level and set the target of 40% non-fossil based electricity generation in the energy mix. This will require scaling up of share of renewable energy (RE) considerably beyond the present target of 175 GW by 2022. With the increase in penetration of renewable energy sources and electric vehicles (EV) in the coming years, it will be a challenge for grid operators to ensure grid reliability and supply of 24X7 quality power and thereby paving the way for deployment energy storage systems for grid support. This roadmap details out the role of energy storage systems in maintaining grid reliability with the increase in RE and EVE penetration of the grid and will also facilitate the utilities to understand the economic opportunities of energy storage system at various levels of RE and EV penetrations.
